Lewis Mumford

It is no accident that the epic of Moby-Dick was written by a common sailor, that Walden was written by a pencil-maker and surveyor, and that Leaves of Grass was written by a printer and carpenter. Only when it is possible to move from one aspect of experience and thought and action to another can the mind follow its complete trajectory.
